analyze - LLVM program analyzer


analyze [options] [filename]


The analyze command performs various analysis of LLVM assembly code or bytecode. It will usually print the results on standard output, but in a few cases, it will print output to standard error or generate a file with the analysis output, which is usually done when the output is meant for another program.

If filename is omitted or is -, analyze reads its input from standard input. It first attempts to interpret its input as LLVM bytecode. If it encounters an error, it then attempts to parse the input as LLVM assembly language.


Print a summary of command line options.

Quiet mode. With this option, analysis pass names are not printed.

-load plugin
Load the specified dynamic object with name plugin. This file should contain additional analysis passes that register themselves with the analyze program after being loaded.

After being loaded, additional command line options are made available for running the passes made available by plugin. Use analyze -load plugin -help to see the new list of available analysis passes.

-profile-info-file filename
Specify the name of the file loaded by the -profile-loader option.

Print statistics.

Record the amount of time needed for each pass and print it to standard error.


If analyze succeeds, it will exit with 0. Otherwise, if an error occurs, it will exit with a non-zero value.
